Representatives from throughout Cole County met January-May 2016 to update the Cole County/Jefferson City Hazard Mitigation Plan. The 2016 update of the plan includes technological and human-made hazards, in addition to the FEMA-required natural hazards. This makes Cole County the second county in the Mid-Missouri Region to support an All Hazards Mitigation Plan.
The plan also includes a discussion of the effects of climate change on hazards threatening the area. The current data indicates observed increases in winter storms, extreme heat, heavy downpours, and the intensity, frequency, and duration of hurricanes. All of these hazards affect the Mid-Missouri region, either directly or indirectly. This discussion in the plan is informed by the 2014 National Climate Assessment , a thorough review of the existing data on climate change and its known and expected effects.
The first draft was submitted for SEMA review in mid-May; the final update is due on August 9, 2016. The current plan expires Nov. 9, 2016.
The working draft of the plan is available below. Comments and questions are welcome and may be directed to the Mid-MO RPC at 573-657-9779.
